    hey i just joined the forum to try and get motivated at the start of my second week.
    i started last week and went to the pop in day midweek and got weighed, was over the moon i had lost 9lbs, but at my weekly weigh in last night i hadnt lost anything else. So at the moment im feeling a bit demotivated about everything, anyone got any advice.

    thanks

    Greentea - you lost (lbs):clap::happy096::happy036:
    That is amazing in itself!
    However we all know that our bodies are full of water and that is why our first loss is amazing [without being too technical - we use our glycogen stores which hold lots of HEAVY water!]
    Now you are burning pure nasty evil FAT!
    every pound is FAT!
    YOU ARE BURNING HALF A POUND OF FAT EACH DAY!:party0023:
    Just keep going with that knowledge!
    It makes sense - you are gonna be slim before you know it!

    Can't give you any advice hun other than to stick with it for another week and see how you do. I have my second week weigh in tomorrow too and I'm dreading it although I know I've done nothing but stick to it.

    You've lost a whopping 9lbs tho!!! How good is that in such a short space of time?? Over half a stone?!!!!

    I think it's still just baby steps with the plan at this early stage to see whether it suits your bod and your way of life. It's a nightmare when those scales don't tell you what you want to hear isn't it?

    9 pounds, in one week - and you are demotivated?? :confused: That is a brilliant loss!!! Your second week will be good too - you are already well more then half a stone in one week!!! :) :) :)

    The pop ins are only for the first week or two - and you then see the whole week at your weigh in. Maybe that will feel better.

    But you are doing great - and its such early days - rejoice what you have done so far!!

    Next time you are in a shop - hold 9 one pound bags of flour - you will be amazed. You are doing great. Hang in there and know that all weeks won't be 9 pounders! :)

    awww, you won;t fail GT. Not as long as you stick around here and let us lot keep you in check!! :D

    Relax - I was the same - could never, ever (for 25 years or so) lose more then 2 stone.

    I cried tears of joy when I had passed the two-mark and lost 3 stone. Then 4. Then 5. And soon 6, and so on.

    This is not liuke any other diet. You WILL succeed and you WILL pass one stone - as long a you play by the rules!! :D
